A Line From Us

Almost every Christian has, at some point after conversion, grappled with these apparently contradictory statements in Scripture:

“For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law” (Rom 3:28).

“You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone” (Jas 2:24).

So, is a man justified by faith or by works? Abraham’s Righteousness deals squarely with this question – I pray that it will lend you a clarity that frees you from this unnecessary conundrum once and for all.

 

For many, this is not just an academic question, and it took many years of searching the Scriptures to arrive at a certain clarity on this issue. Salvation through Faith in Jesus is the testimony of one such man, while God is Faithful tells a rather different story of another young lady’s journey in coming to Christ.

Indeed, the Christian life begins with faith, and it continues in faith. Two articles, Warning Against Worldliness, and Christians and Relationships elucidate different aspects of how the believer should work out his salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12).

But if your life is not characterised by faith in Christ, if repentance is not an ongoing experience for you, I would urge you to carefully consider the article Be Reconciled to the Holy God. Do not step into eternity at enmity with Him!
